    General boot camp knowledge.. current events (watch tv or read newspaper day before), uniform regs, Marine Corps history, ask someone how to properly report and dismiss.. make sure your uniform is squared away (from top to bottom), get a haircut, wear dog tags, don't forget military id in left breast pocket, be confident in your answers, don't look around and break bearing, acknowledge member of the board who is asking you the question (face them, repeat question and don't forget to get their rank right). Ask your NCO for assistance on any of these things covered.

    Last, don't forget.. even if you lose.. you'll pick up LCpl in a matter of months as long as you stay out of trouble. :dunno:

    More than anything it is about bearing and acting like you know even though you probably have no idea.

    I didn't know they had lcpl boards.

    :rofl: We got one PFC who's going on a board next week. He's supposed to pick up Lance in November, so if he does good at least he'll be a couple of months ahead of his peers :dunno:
